To feel offended to the point that everything you stand for as a human is demeaned by one word…
To strip the lackluster of English language, and sand it down to the core Latin, past the Greek… it’s like we’re speaking Afrikaans.
When it’s too left to speak out and too right to control, three lefts make a right, maybe two wrongs do too?
The wrong of saying the word, and a subsequent scrubbing of the sentence’s meaning.
You say you mean well, but how does one know if you really mean what you say?
